A Man Called Ove is a morbidly funny and moving success.

Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife's grave, Ove has given up on life. After a boisterous young family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove's mailbox, an unlikely friendship form.

- Director: Hannes Holm languages: Swedish, Persian.
- Awards: European Film Award for Best European Comedy,
- Nominations: Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Holm’s well-judged adaptation of the bestseller keeps the maudlin to a minimum and plays the black comedy just right. A strong contender for feel-good film of the year.

Contains strong language and some disturbing images. In Swedish with subtitles. 116 minutes.
